I think all the jokes and comments by the announcers were unprofessional.

I could have swore the 3rd guy.. the actual announcer was drunk.. After half he was talkin and his words seemed all slurred and shit.. And yeah several times they didn't even think about what they were saying.. what a catch by Batch! And the throw from Batch was amazing too!! I can't stand that trifecta.. Worst announcers around. I'd take Dan Dierdorf back over that crap.......

Yep

I think the ESPN Sunday night announcers are consistently terrible. Theisman is the most annoying to me because he just doesn't stop talking, and his tone is always negative and confrontational. Sort of like how Trev Alberts used to act on College Gameday, or whatever show that was. Just terrible.

It was also ridiculous how they all jumped on Northcutt after he dropped a pass. That guy has been on the browns forever and has always been one of their best players. Then, the jabs against the Steeler fans that they based on a fraudulent story. You know it's bad when I was wishing for John Madden to start announcing!

Nobody was drunk...Mike Patrick just talks slow.

Tommy Maddox is over. He may be able to mentally handle a game, but his passing arm is shot...if you watch his passes, even his short throws, the nose of the ball seems to angle down...it's a sure sign of a guy (Chad Pennington suffered the same symptoms this year, but he has an excuse) who has lost his arm-strength.

I admire Tommy Maddox for what he's gone though and the fact that he came back and played well...but...

It. Is. Over.

[QUOTE=Atlanta Dan]What ticked me off was McGuire saying he felt bad for Maddox because the fans dumped trash on his yard, which Theismann immediately agreed ws horrible. Too bad they did not bother to find out Maddox's agent made that story up, which Maddox's wife denied ever happened.

I normally am too footballed out to watch the Sunday night game - regardless of who you rooted for the announcers were terrible, being unable to get names or down and distance right.Even the sideline reporter was a mess, stating at one point that when Dilfer came to Cleveland he was told the one thing he had to do was "beat the Browns" (huh?)


Suzy Kolber is a dunce. She is in love with Ray Lewis and the Ravens. She is always too excited about little things and adds absolutely nothing to the broadcast, no pun intended.

Trust me Batch was no superstar in his games. Maddox is on a downward spiral to Kordell Stewart level and Ben better quit doing his Duce Staley impression. We need to get back to some consistency.

Totally agree. Everybody seems to forget a couple of seasons ago when he saved our arse against the Browns.
